The ACRL Image Resources Interest Group provides a forum for ongoing discussion of the unique issues presented by the development and support of interdisciplinary image resources in academic libraries.

There is a growing need across academic disciplines for access to quality research and instructional image content, and many academic libraries are responding by offering image collections as a standard resource. Libraries are playing an important role in evaluating and funding subscription image databases, and are also developing local interdisciplinary image collections, providing technical infrastructure for image collection development and delivery, and supporting research and instruction with images.

 These topics and more are the focus of the ACRL Image Resources Interest Group. Additional issues of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Selecting and using subscription image databases
  • Choosing digital asset management and presentation tools
  • Working with images across systems and platforms
  • Supporting faculty research and teaching with images
  • Developing interdisciplinary image collections
  • Collaborating with academic departments and across library units to support image resource development and use
  • Image cataloging and metadata
  • Effective access to image resources through library web sites
  • Visual literacy
  • Image copyright
  • Digital capture
